AOL and Time Warner Beat, First Solar Goes to the Woodshed

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Stocks continued to slide Wednesday as momentum on the daily charts for the major equity averages begin to roll over. Among the seven stocks I profiled pre-earnings on Aug. 5 in AOL, Time Warner, Disney and First Solar Earnings Preview, four beat EPS estimates, one matched and both energy-related companies missed.

The Dow Industrial Average stayed above its weekly value level at 15,374 as did the S&P 500 vs. its weekly level at 1676.8. The Nasdaq closed below its monthly pivot at 3663. The Dow transportation average closed below its weekly value level at 6475, while the Russell 2000 stayed below its weekly level at 1053.08.

Fundamentally the ValuEngine valuation warning continues with 75.5% of all stocks overvalued with 42.2% overvalued by 20% or more. 15 of 16 sectors are overvalued, 14 by double-digit percentages including eight overvalued by more than 20%.
